Officials in Marblehead, Mass., earlier this month decided that the town’s docks had become overcrowded with fishers — so the board voted to ban all fishing from public piers.
Naturally, a few Bay Staters are upset with the decision.
“I say no way, let us fish,” one teen told CBS Boston. “Why not let us fish down here?”
Harbormaster Webb Russell explains that the docks were being crowded by people from outside of Marblehead. In fact, according to the CBS Boston report, many of the people in the above photos are from the Cambodian community.
“It was a little bit out of control,” Russell said. “The volume of people fishing down the gangway here, side-by-side.”
But, again, some Marblehead residents are unhappy with the decision.
